Girl, 13, with terminal cancer saved by cutting-edge world-first treatment

A GIRL with terminal cancer has been saved by a world-first treatment.

Alyssa, 13, was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2021 — but after chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant her cancer came back.

Cutting-edge treatment has helped Alyssa, 13, into remisson

Now mum Kiona, the cousin of fashion guru Gok Wan, said they are “on cloud nine” as Alyssa is in remission, thanks to treatment at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital in May.

Doctors gave her a ­cutting-edge treatment made of white blood cells in a lab using gene editing.

Kiona said: “Hopefully this can prove the research works.”

Gok Wan, 48, raised nearly £54,000 for Young Lives vs Cancer last year by shaving his head live on This Morning.
